Daily Changes

I can't believe how much change you can see on a newborns face on a daily basis! Cora is growing and growing...I'm just trying to keep up and not get too emotional! She is a pretty laid back baby, expect when she's hungry...she definitely has a set of lungs (I'm waiting for our neighbors to ask if we know what we are doing!). When we had her first Pediatrician visit, she had gained 9oz in 5 days! Normally, newborns only gain an ounce a day so Cora has almost doubled the recommendation!! I may overload each post with pictures, but I just can't stop taking pictures of our beautiful little girl!!!

Our first family photo!

Best moment and feeling having your newborn placed on your chest!

Miss smiley!

Leaving as a family of 3!!!

Daddy and his little girl!
Wide awake!

Pure beauty!

Not the best picture, but loving being a mom!


So content and beautiful!

The Waiting Game...

I'm 2 days past due and it looks like this baby is way too comfortable to make an appearance. I have a scheduled induction date this Thursday at 7:30pm. I'm really hoping to somehow start the labor process naturally, but we can only hope and pray!

we will keep you posted.........

Lazy or Stubborn??

I had my dr's appt today and this child has no intention of making an appearance ANYTIME soon. I'm actually measuring 38 weeks, which is a little behind but the Dr said it's nothing to worry about.
Joel said he/she already takes after him because he's lazy and I say possibly, maybe take after me for my little little little sense of stubbornness. Just LITTLE though! I guess we really won't find out week!
I go back on Friday for a non-stress test and if that turns out ok, I'll go to another appointment on Monday for an ultrasound to detect the amount of fluid around the baby. If all goes well, I'll be induced next week for sure!

HOPEFULLY last belly picture!
39 weeks!
38 Weeks!
